Baraboo High School Reviews

I graduated from Baraboo High School in June of 2018. I attended all 12 years of schooling in the Baraboo School District. The High School helped me take AP courses to help prepare for college, and also worked with UW-Baraboo/Sauk County to allow BHS students take college courses during high school. Not all teachers at Baraboo were helpful to guide us on the right track to college, which has now given me struggles and put me behind since I am now in college. I think the high school needs to offer more AP testing and learn how to help students prepare for college better.

I like that there are so many different opportunities for the students. There are so many different classes, clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities. The teachers there are great. They make sure that every student has a chance to succeed. I wish that the school was more focused on the curriculum than on sports. When it comes to sports here, everything is about politics. In my personal opinion high school and middle school sports should be more about the students' love for the games instead of politics.
I enjoyed Baraboo High because of a lot of different things. The main reason I like it is the teachers. The teachers are amazing and are always willing to help you. Also the teachers and the classes offered at my school help myself and my fellow students prepare for college in the best way possible. One thing I would like to see change about Baraboo High is the sports. Some of our sports teams are pretty good but the other half, not so much. Most of it starts with our facilities which need improvement. Overall though, my experience at Baraboo High has been great.
